Morgan, Grant B.; Moore, Courtney A.; Floyd, Harlee S. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
Although content validity--how well each item of an instrument represents the construct being measured--is foundational in the development of an instrument, statistical validity is also important to the decisions that are made based on the instrument. The primary purpose of this study is to demonstrate how simulation studies can be used to assist…

Walter, Daniel; von Bialy, Johanna; von Wirth, Elena; Doepfner, Manfred – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
The School Refusal Assessment Scale-Revised (SRAS-R) is a widely used measure of the functional conditions leading to school absenteeism. In the present study, we developed a German version of the SRAS-R and investigated its psychometric properties in a clinical sample (N = 62) of referred school absentees aged 11 to 17 years. Results of an…

Christ, Theodore J.; Desjardins, Christopher David – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
Curriculum-Based Measurement of Oral Reading (CBM-R) is often used to monitor student progress and guide educational decisions. Ordinary least squares regression (OLSR) is the most widely used method to estimate the slope, or rate of improvement (ROI), even though published research demonstrates OLSR's lack of validity and reliability, and…

Zhoc, Karen C. H.; Li, Johnson C. H.; Webster, Beverley J. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
Emotional Intelligence Scale (EIS) is a popular EI measure. Yet, it has been criticized for an unclear factor structure, and its psychometric properties were mainly examined in the Western context. This study was to evaluate its psychometric properties based on 1,724 Hong Kong undergraduate students, including its (a) factor structure, (b)…

Children's oral language skills typically begin to develop sooner than their written language skills; however, the four language systems (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) then develop concurrently as integrated strands that influence one another. This research explored relationships between students' errors in language comprehension of…
